May I suggest removing the politics section in its entirety, as all is does is lead to arguments.

Also sales section, remove the 100 euro limit as that will bring some traffic back to the website.

Thanks Mark and Gary for staying with the site. I rarely view the General Chat section and agree with Kev that it's where people generally "disagree" with one another so perhaps it should stay as it is. It is mostly about things British and is one of the reasons I don't participate. I think the General Enquiries is a very helpful section and when someone is looking for help it is good to see some of the posters who haven't participated lately coming back to chip in. But the demise of the search function is regrettable and if it could be restored that would be good. Here's to 2018. Bee

It isn`t just you Bee.

There is a big gap in Search between 2008 and 2017.... The years in between seem to be missing.

Good idea .. or if not, stipulate that ALL political posts are to be put in the Politics section and NOT in General Chat. That way any members not interested in politics will not be forced to look at posts with obvious contentious political headings.

And any political posts not in the correct section should be moved or better still, removed, by the new moderator ... as Gary used to do in the good old days. :D

Lets make and keep General Chat a politics free zone.

The thing is John, nobody is forcing anyone to look at anything.

I hate sport as you know, have no pets, I never go in to sport and tell people that their posts are drivel and they are sheep for following foreign mercenaries, or tell the pet owners that we don’t want to read about parrot flu, or cat herpes.

If you see a post on any forum, and the subject doesn’t interest you, well you skip it, and move on, you get an idea of someone’s posting habits and you know in advance what it’s about, you can add this person to foes and avoid their content.

I think people are making a big deal about general chat killing this forum,

So that's what you have been thinking all along Mrs Nelson / Kev

No one has said General Chat is killing the forum, it's the Political trash being posted in General Chat instead of the Politics Section which is killing the forum.

The Politics section is for any thing to do with politics just as the Pets section is for anything to do with pets just as the Charity section is for anything to do with charity etc etc.

The line under the Politics section reads 'This section is for Discussion about Politics only'

Hopefully this clears up your misunderstanding.


Memo to Mark@gohost4you :
Could I suggest you include under the General Chat section:
Here you can discuss anything you wish 'except topics which has it's own section on the Forum'

You’re another one eve , you come on here and complain and add nothing.

How dare you call people’s posts trash, who the hell are you ??

You can talk about anything you want in general chat. That’s how it’s been for yonks.

So do you want to tie the moderators time up moving posts about.

If I want to know what time carrefour is open because I want to buy some dog food, does this post go in GC GE or pets ?


Grow up for goodness sake. :lol:

I believe Eve is correct, if you have got a political post put it in the Politics Section, what's wrong with some people on this site that argue for the sake of it.

Gary said as much back in 2010...but certain people know that they would be ignored if their posts are put in the correct section.

Hi
I normally turn a blind eye to a lot of the replies that are posted on this board,
but when the people that pay to advertise on this site, start complaining.
Then its time for me to do something about it.
I have just removed approximately 15 replies to the thread about Playa Nudista.

I dont care how long anybody has been a member for on here.
There will be no warning, they will just be banned.

If anybody wants to leave now, just let me know and I will delete you and your
posts from the messageboard.

I am sure that you all know what I mean.

Regards

Gary

ps....please make sure that your message goes in the correct section.
